Romney wins endorsement from Trump

Donald Trump has confirmed that he will endorse Mitt Romney's bid for the White House.

The billionaire businessman said he made the decision after getting to know Mr Romney by meeting with him several times in the past few months.

He also cited Mr Romney's performances in presidential debates and his tough stance on China as reasons for his support.

It was an apparent turnaround for Mr Trump, who has made negative comments about Mr Romney in the past, including dismissing him as a "small business guy".

And there were reports just this week that claimed the businessman was to get behind rival candidate Newt Gingrich.

Mr Trump said previous negative comments were a reflection of not knowing Mr Romney well enough.

He also said he would not run for president as an independent if Mr Romney becomes the Republican nominee.
